Power Switch w/leds and connector with +/-15v, 5v, and Gnd for powering breadboarded circuits.

The case had a high base to allow the 4-octave keyboard to fit inside for transport. I transported the beast only once to play in a hastily formed band for an office party. Never again. I really want to re-package this; new case, new front panels, improvements to the innards.

Upper keyboard is Electronotes ENS-76 digital with my revisions
Lower keyboard was a Hohner Electric Piano

The small keyboard partly visible on the left is 2 1/2 octaves and sits atop my first synth, built with Motorola RTL! It was based on a design called Digi-vox by Ralph Burhans. I couldn't get some of it to work, so I substituted circuits from other sources: PAIA 2700 style 'VCF's, Divide by 5, 6, 7 for sub-harmonics. Patching was with tip jacks.

Barely visible above the low end of the Hohner is a primitive sequencer.
